Special guests from IBM joined neXt Curve to discuss the future of digital, their thesis on “Digital Reinvention” and how organizations need to take a different approach to their business, culture and leadership models to ready themselves for Digital Reinvention in part 2 of this 3-part series. 

On May 2nd, 2018, neXCurve hosted a webcast panel discussion with special guest from IBM to discuss the Institute of Business Value (IBV)’s research and white paper entitled “Using Data by Design: Digital Reinvention in Electronics”.  Cristene Gonzalez-Wertz, Director of Electronics Research, Scott Burnett, Director of IBM Global Markets, and Reza Firouzbakht, Partner and Digital Strategy Leader, IBM GBS shared the highlights of their research with Dean Freeman, Akshay Sharma and Jodi Starkman of neXCurve.

How Do Organizations Get Ready?

Companies that undergo Digital Reinvention require a self-funding approach to safeguard innovation as well as continually building digital proficiency.  According to IBM, electronics  businesses and their ecosystem partners should continue developing new compelling experiences and move toward building shared data platforms and monetizing new value opportunities.

Electronics firms must continue digitizing processes, functions and activities across the enterprise. At the same time, they need to monitor and understand digitization in the industries they service.

Electronics industry leaders need to identify, assemble and retain the talent necessary to create and sustain highly digital organizations, and establish innovation-infused cultures.
